Default Worst decision (by a fighter) in history...

No doubt it's Floyd's refusal to make an easy hundred million fighting Pac. Such an easy fight for him yet he killed by asking too much testing. He would've made a gazillion of money and not sweat at all.

Business wise it was a terrible decision. Even if he lost (most likely wouldn't have) there still would have been a rematch and a huge pay day.

Floyd easily lost out on a lot of money. He has enough money but it's still something he regrets. The rich love to get richer.

Yawn. It's Pacquiao's refusal to do the blood test in 2009, then refusing to take the 40 million dollars (His highest payday).

Ffs Manny makes 6 million a fight.

Floyd made more money than any of ATHLETE last year. He's doing fine.

The people who stood to benefit most financially were Pacquiao and Arum.

Mayweather gets his 40 million against the likes of Cotto and Mosley while Pacquiao gets anywhere from 15-25 for similar type of fights.

100 million would have been the total fighter purse so 50/50, 55/45 would have more than doubled Pacquiao's earnings while providing Floyd with a small bump from his usual.

How morons like you never understood this is baffling.

Not really Mayweather's decision to make. Pacquiao had been avoiding the fight from day one. He only "agreed" to terms when he had a fight with Marquez under contract. It was just a marketing ploy on Pacquiao's part to "agree"

Tony Ayala springs to mind, for raping women instead of fighting.
